I SEEN A BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH CAUSE THAT PROBLEMS THE BRAKE SWITCH ALLOWS CURRENT TO FLOW FROM THE STOP FUSE TO THE BRAKE LIGHTS AND THE CONTROLLER WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED.THIS INPUT TELLS THE EBCM THAT THE BRAKES ARE APPLIED.

1998 dodge Dakota Ok so I just got this truck and when I got it the abs light and brake light were on plus the speedo doesn't work sometimes I replaced the rear speed sense on the diff but the lights...


If the red brake light and the ABS light are both lit up on the dashboard, do NOT drive the vehicle. It indicates a major malfuntion with the brake system. The red light indicates low brake fluid or the parking brake engaged. The yellow ABS without the red light, indicates a problem the computer found and it disables the ABS system while still having conventional brakes. Since both are lit, it needs the brake system repaired. What you replaced on the rear diff was probably the rear ABS sensor. The vehicle speed sensor for the speedometer should be located on the rear of your transfer case if you have 4WD, or on the rear of the trans if you have 2WD.

My brake light, ABS light and TCS light all appear on dashboard.This all occurred after my van wouldn't start in extremely cold weather. I'm afraid to drive the van. My husband thinks it might be low...


The brake light may be on because of low fluid.The traction control is on because the abs light is on.System requires the abs to be actively working for traction control to work.The most common cause of this is a wheel speed sensor which on this vehicle is part of the bearing hub assembly.You will need a scan tool to locate where the fault is in the abs system.

Brake indicator lamb


My Chiltons manual for the toyota seinna 1998-2002 it says that with the lite always on means ecu malfunction and the action to take is ' ecu problem '. Sometimes these manuals leave a lot to be desired.

there appears to be a speed sensor on every wheel with the abs actuator assembly(including ecu) is attached to the brake booster.

the manual says. . . .The ABS computer(ECU) is mounted within the ABS actuator and is the ' brain' for the ABS system. The function of the computer is to accept and process information recieved from the wheel speed sensors to control the hydraulic line pressure, avoiding wheel lock up. The computer aslo constantly monitores the system, even under normal driving conditions, to find faults within the system.
If a problem develops within the system, an "ABS" light will glow on the dashboard. A diagnostic cod will also be stored in the computer and, when retrieved, will indicate problem area or component.

I hope this helps

Dashboard brake light stays on, 1990 Suburban


Most likely. Usually what happens to mine, is the wires to the sensors get broken from stones hitting them. i splice them back together and they are good for a while. Or the sensors get dirty.
